Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) were administered to 102 healthy pregnant women in a face-to-face interview. The mean age was 25.5±3.8 (17-34) and the mean gestational week was 32.1±8.3 (12-41). Mean total PSQI score was 7.5±4.4, mean score in Beck Anxiety Inventory was 11.5±5.2 (2-22), the mean score in Beck Depression Inventory was 8.5±2.7 (3-15). Sixty one percent of the pregnant women had a global PSQI above 5.
